Chelsea are also admirers of Wilson, 27, but their transfer ban scuppered any prospect of a move during this window.
Bournemouth were also keen to reward Wilson after another impressive season.
Wilson scored 15 goals for Eddie Howe’s side and also made his breakthrough into the England squad, winning three caps and scoring on his debut against the USA.
‘We’ve improved in all areas since I initially joined the club but there’s still a long way to go,’ Wilson told afcbTV at the club’s Spanish training camp.
‘While AFC Bournemouth may be known as a smaller club, we’ve got some really big ambitions here. Everyone is pulling in the same direction towards those targets and goals.

‘I feel like as an individual, my game is constantly improving here at the club. I want to continue that progress and reach even higher targets. I’m really excited about what the future holds.’
AFC Bournemouth chief executive, Neill Blake, added: ‘Throughout his time at the club Callum has demonstrated incredible determination to succeed at the highest level – even in the face of adversity in the form of two season-ending injuries.
‘He has proved himself as a Premier League striker and is now beginning to establish himself at international level, and this contract is just reward for that.
‘We have no desire to lose our best players and this is further evidence of the board’s commitment to keep AFC Bournemouth progressing year on year.’
